Interuniversal Pokemon Tournament

Posted by: SCsc - 03-18-19, 07:18 PM - Forum: General - Replies (1)

Hi guys, I'm SCsc. Not actually new as such, but I used to go by SLC/SLCalamity - hopefully a few of you will remember me! First joined back in 2007 (with a few other name changes in between) but stopped playing like 4 or 5 years ago when I started to lose interest in Pokemon. Used to be an official and head judge. Kinda getting back into Pokemon so thought I'd give URPG another shot. I'm super out of touch with a lot of the newer stuff but hopefully I should be able to get back into it. Definitely not going to be as active as I used to be (and might be gone just as suddenly as I returned) but hoping I'll stick around for a bit.

I'll be starting fresh. See you guys soon!

  Why Me? [Ready for Grading]
Posted by: Kentucky Fried Torchic - 03-18-19, 03:27 PM - Forum: Stories - No Replies

Why Me?: (Wynaut [Easiest])

He had been trapped on this island for two days now, and already Bewear Grylls was confident that there would be no rescue, that he was going to die here.

Grylls’ fears were not necessarily due to his geographic location; his crew was only a few miles away on a nearby island, probably waiting for their erstwhile boss to arrive.  Instead, odd as it may have sounded, there was something off about the island.  He had seen planes flying overheard and ships passing by tantalizingly close, but they had not paid any attention to him or to the island, no matter how loud he had shouted or how many clothes he had taken off to wave at potential saviors.  Grylls was not a particularly proud man when the chips were down.

He knew now that things had gone horribly wrong, and yet also horribly right.  The next season of his hit survival series was supposed to include an episode set on Hoenn’s mysterious “Mirage Island”, but instead of faking it with dramatic narration, top-notch editing, and thirty-five professionally trained Wynaut, he had gone off course somehow and crash-landed on the genuine article.  Karmic retribution for a career built on lies, or a random accident?  He didn’t know.

What Grylls did know was that he was painfully hungry.  For all of his fraud, a few lines from his show had stuck in his memory: “Food means energy, energy means movement, and movement means survival.”  He had quickly taken care of his complimentary bag of peanuts and without his usual catering service he had been forced to subsist on a strict diet of Liechi berries.  He was sick of the sweet fruit, but there was nothing else on the blasted island, except for…

Grylls looked away from the ocean on the horizon and back to his prison, and its inhabitants.  There was a thriving community of Wynaut on the island; fat and happy with a virtually endless supply of food and no predators.  They would be easy pickings for a desperate television host.

When he had first landed on the island, the Wynaut had regarded him with curiosity, but after two days he was just another part of their home.  He could use that familiarity to his advantage.  There were a lot of the little blue Pokémon, however, and they might not take too kindly to their giant uninvited guest roasting one of them over an open fire.  So, Grylls decided that his first goal was to get one of them alone.  A test case really.  Once he had worked out how to kill and cook Wynaut, he should be set for weeks, certainly long enough for a rescue to come.

For the next hour, he scouted out a nearby pack of twenty- or thirty-something Wynaut and plotted his next move.  Cooperating to gather food, sunning themselves on rocks, and playing indecipherable games, the smiling Pokémon gave every indication of sticking together.  But as the sun began to lower from its zenith in the sky, one Wynaut, an unusually big one too, wandered away from the group – right into the bushes where Grylls was hiding.

As soon as the diminutive Pokémon was close enough, two huge hands sprung out from the greenery and dragged the Wynaut in.  At first, the startled Wynaut was crying “Wy! Wy!” in earnest, but then one of the hairy hands closed over its mouth.

If the other Wynaut noticed their friend’s abduction, they gave no sign of it to Bewear Grylls.  Besides, his mouth was already watering in anticipation.  Under his sweaty hands, the captive Wynaut felt slick and rubbery, but Grylls contented himself by starting a mantra in his head that soon slipped out past his lips: “Tastes like Torchic, tastes like Torchic”.

When he brought the Wynaut up to his face to smell it, the small Pokémon saw a chance for escape and whacked him solidly in the nose with its black tail.  More out of surprise than pain, Grylls released his hold on it and the Wynaut landed with a bounce on Mirage Island’s grass.  In an instant it was off running further into the protective coverage of sparsely populated woods.

Grylls was after it at once.  His progress was not elegant, but the speed with which he could barrel through the flimsy barriers of wood and leaf that the Wynaut was nimbly ducking through made it more than an even race.  The small Pokémon was crying out for help as it fled, but all Grylls could hear was the pumping of blood in his ears and the three words that were tattooed on what was left of his conscious mind: Tastes like Torchic, tastes like Torchic.

They were nearing the edge of the island now, and the Wynaut slowed its speed in order to plot its next route.  Its pursuer was hindered by no such compunctions and sprung on it, burying the tiny Pokémon under his unwashed bulk.  His eyes were alight with victory and hunger, but something human returned to them when he looked behind him and saw a ring of Wynaut closing in on him, cutting him off from the rest of the island.

“Wy-Naut!  Wy-Naut!” they bellowed with uniform smiles even as they beat their tails on the earth in a pounding rhythm.

And suddenly Bewear Grylls found himself wondering what he tasted like.

Profession Activity Hub

One of URPG's most unique features is the ability to participate in a way that helps keep the game running smoothly. With that in mind, we wanted to give back to the people who regularly volunteer their time to let others enjoy the game. Professionals: treat yo'self!

Post here each week with a log of your first activity in each of your professions, each with proof to that activity. “Weeks” begin on Monday, 12:01am CT. When you’ve completed all of the professions that you have, you can post that week's log in #questions-approvals for approval to claim your rewards. You can claim these rewards at any time during the week, but please claim all of the sections you plan on doing all at once rather than one at a time.

If you forget to claim your reward after the week has ended, you have a week to back-date claim those rewards. You cannot claim rewards from before this program began.

These rewards do not count toward any section legend or similar metric.

Eligible Activity
Below are the eligible tasks that are considered “profession activity” in each of their respective sections:
  • All sections: Grading and/or administering a profession quiz/test

  • Battles: Reffing a battle or grading
  • Contests: Judging a contest
  • Stories: Grading a story (concise or in-depth grade)
  • Art: Curating one work of art (concise or in-depth curation)
  • National Park: Posting a Ranger reply
  • Morphic: Posting a Random Event post, posting a Flotsam Bluff post, or judging a fight

  • $1,500 - each first weekly activity in a profession (maximum of 6)
  • $2,000 - complete 2 out of 6 possible profession activities
  • $3,000 - complete 4 out of 6 possible profession activities
  • $4,000 - complete 6 out of 6 possible profession activities

Total possible reward: $18,000 per week

Enjoy, and get to claiming!

Ever wanted a little something extra for dabbling in a little bit of everything? Here's a great chance! We've released a new program that rewards you for participating in a variety of professions each week! You can find more information here!

For development project leaders, please note that should another project fill a similar role as this one, it will be replaced with its similar development counterpart! Please feel free to use the ideas of this program in your own activity-reward-based projects!

Bright sunlight. That was the first thing that greeted Seiro's eyes. His ears were then presented with waves crashing against the beach.

"Where...am I?" he asks, climbing to his feet, when he notices something is off. He didn't have a tail or fur before, did he? ...did he? What even was he before becoming this? "...what am I? I...think I'm a Riolu, but...how? How do I know that? And...what was I before this? Ugh...I can't remember any of it..."

Reaching down with a hand-paw to dust some sand off his tail, he tentatively steps forward, his Riolu body's new sense of balance not entirely compatible with the mind of, well, whatever he used to be. He shakes and stumbles a bit, but manages to slowly tiptoe forward, away from the sand. "Is anybody there?" he softly, yet forcefully calls out across the wide swathe of black sand.
